MOTORSPORTS AND 15-40 CONNECTION MAKE DEBUT
AT DAYTONA INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY
No. 15 Chevrolet
primed for solid runs at UNOH Battle At The Beach
and New Smyrna World Series of Asphalt events
International Speedway is hallowed ground for racers
across the nation and while Rob Fuller, owner and
driver of Rob Fuller Motorsports is entering his
25th year in racing, he will be making his driving
debut at the famed speedway on Tuesday, Feb. 18 in
the UNOH Battle At The Beach.
The non-points event combines the NASCAR Whelen
Modified and Whelen Southern Modified Tours and is
in conjunction with the first race of the season for
the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.
“I enjoy being at the same track as the other
divisions,” said Fuller. “The first race of the year
is exciting no matter where it is, but racing at
Daytona is always special. I also like to sneak over
to the dirt track when I can. Having so much racing
going on in such a small area is definitely cool.”
Fuller’s sponsor, 15-40 Connection, will also make
its debut at “The World Center of Racing” as the
race team partnership extends to a second season.
The non-profit is committed to raising awareness of
the fact that cancer survival rates in teens and
young adults ages 15 to 40 have barely improved
since 1975 in large part because of delays in
diagnosis. The group empowers individuals with
knowledge that will save and improve lives through
early cancer detection.
“We’re thrilled to be on the No. 15 Chevrolet at
Daytona - one of the most recognizable race tracks
in the world,” said Tricia Laursen, Executive
Director of 15-40 Connection. “As we enter our
second season with Rob and his team, we are looking
forward to sharing some of the personal stories from
young adult cancer patients that may help race fans
identify and detect cancer symptoms earlier.”
In addition to the historic moment of racing at
Daytona for the first time, the start of the 2014
season marks Rob Fuller’s 25th year in racing.
Continuing his family legacy, Fuller has found
success across many positions and aspects of the
sport he grew up in. From racing quarter midget race
cars at age 5 to becoming known as one of the
fastest tire changers in NASCAR, Fuller has enjoyed
a long career in motorsports and continues to build
his family’s legacy.
“Being a second generation racer has definitely been
a blessing,” said Fuller, who’s father and uncle
started the family legacy in Late Model racing.
“This sport has been very good to me so I'm doing
all I can to give back and stay involved as much as
